said hillary clinton, 72 said michelle obama. >> a lot of her fans out there. she had an excellent speech, there's no doubt about that. >> for wolf blitzer and i. piers morgan continues our coverage from the n pires. >> good evening and welcome to charlotte's hottest hot spot. the cnn grill. the political meeting sometimes over a beer or two. i'm here with two trusty drinkers. and my political all star panel. where else but the speeches in great stuff tonight including rising star, san antonio mayor. the democrats not so secret weapon. >> he knows what it means when a family struggles. he knows what it means to want something more for your kids and grandkids. barack knows the american dream because he's lived it and he wants everyone in this country, everyone to have the same opportunity no matter who we are or where we're from or what we look like or who we love. >> you have attracted quite a crowd. >> it is the sizzling energy bouncing off the place. the castro brothers were very die n dynamic. michelle obama knocked it out of the park as you americans would say. >> i thought she
, first lady, michelle obama. we'll show you the first lady, and the speeches, take a look. >> serving as your first lady is an honor and a privilege. but back when we first came together four years ago, i still had some concerns about this journey we had started. while i believed deeply in my husband's vision for this country, and i was certain he would make an extraordinary president, like any mother, i was worried about what it would mean for our girls if he got that chance. how will we keep them grounded under the glare of the national spotlight? how would they feel being unrooted from their school, their friends and the only home they had ever known? see, our life before moving to washington was filled with simple joys. saturdays at soccer games. sundays at grandmother's house. and a date night for barack obama and me was either date, dinner or a movie, because i couldn't stay awake for both. and the truth is, i loved the life we had built for our girls. and i deeply loved the man i had built that life with. and i didn't want that to change as he became president. i loved barak ju
, ann romney was an asset. michelle obama, who was polarizing in the first campaign, she said a few things, she probably didn't mean them the way they came across, but at one point she said i've never been more proud about my country. she has redeemed herself. republicans concede this point with her work with military families. >> i think both of these women had a job and i don't know why it's always the woman's job to humanize the husband. but be that as it may. but they had to kind of lift the veil, if you will, talk about who their husbands really are as the chief character witness, which wives are. >> they also talked about the choices that they have. they also talked about making sure that you don't slam the door behind you. when you moved up to the next rung of laer of success and we're all in this together. michelle obama especially, the first lady talked about an appeal to moms across the country. >> i thought they were both terrific. they're both a great credit to their husbands and families and to their country. are we ending on a point of consensus? i think we are. thank
. and by the way, after last night, i want a man who had the good sense to marry michelle obama. now, i -- i, i want -- i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states. and, i proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. now, folks, in tampa a few days ago, we heard a lot of talk. oh, about how the president and the democrats don't really believe in free enterprise and individual initiative. how we want everybody to depend on the government. how bad we are for the economy. this republican narrative, its alternative universe says that every one of us in this room who amounts to anything, we're all completely self-made. one of the greatest chairman that the democratic party ever had, bob strauss, used to say that every politician wants every voter to believe he was born in a log cabin he built himself. but, as strauss then admitted, it ain't so. we democrats, we think the country works better with a strong middle class, with real opportunities for poor folks to work their way into it. with business and government actually working together to promote gr
tough, isn't it, the public eye. if you are michelle obama or ann romney or whoever you are, kate middleton, doesn't really matter who you are or what country you're in, the amount of attention that female very high profile people get these days, it's pretty unbearable, isn't it? how do you deal with that generally? generally? >> well, i think -- i think it's very difficult because you are always -- you always worry so much. not really, i can't generalize. i worry so much. i worry what's going to be the backlash or what is it -- what -- am i looking right, not looking right? in fact, i am a very godmother. an independent woman, i'm a children's book author, and i'm striving to make a difference in education for children with my charitable causes. so i think the best thing you can do is strive on. keep your head held high, and have courage in your heart. and, you know, you can't go back. you just go forward and keep walking tall. >> you certainly have done that the last time you were on my show, i got very intrusive with you and asked you about your love life and you said the follo
